This is the blog of Elmar Vogt, and it is professed with the Voynich Manuscript. (If you have no idea, what that is, this whole thing probably won’t make sense to you. Check out the Wikipedia entry about the VM!)
There is a fairly active mailing list trying to decipher the VM to which I’ve posted since I discovered the VM in late 2003. Now, two things.
- I found that I probably lack the stubborness and dedication to actually crack the VM. If I can contribute anything useful, it’s probably more by acting in the way of an advocatus diaboli for people’s hypothesis, or by giving constructive ciriticism and making detail observations.
- The volatile nature of a mailing list makes it sometimes difficult to access information. The fact that discussions can continue over long threads often makes them lose their point when looking back after a time. It’s difficult to retrieve the kernels of truth from the clutter of traffic.
So, I thought it’s probably nicer to comprehend my ideas and conclusions on a blog like this where it’s easier to edit things, should notions or facts have changed, and where it’s easier to find stuff again.
Enjoy, and don’t forget to leave a comment or drop me a line personally!
